From the latest issue of Bon Appetit April 2006. We made this on the weekend but instead of stuffing the half egg slices, the mixture was mashed to make egg salad sandwiches! Just in time for Easter....

Wonderful eggs! I made a few for a snack to test the recipe before serving them for easter dinner. They disappeared very quickly. My family loved them. Thanks!
